    I had a radical prostatectomy over fours year now and still suffer with neuropathic pain in my urethra .I am taking neurostil(gabapentin)300mg x 3;palexia sr100 x 2; and amitriptyline 25mg x 2 and it barely keeps pain at bay. A little too much exercise ,short wall sitting too long will set the pain off.

    Does anyone know what can be done.I have two caudel epidurals and also three sets of lidocaine and keratin infusion which helped to ease the pain but is not gone.
    Does anyone have any similar experience and can anything else be done
